Social, Modular, Programmable

Linkitz is a wearable electronic toy for social play. It's modular and snaps together, allowing kids to customize their toy.

Linkitz is designed for kids and doesn't require any knowledge of programming -- changing how the links are connected changes how they interact -- but Linkitz comes with a kid-friendly visual programming language that lets kids change how their links behave.

Instead of "teaching" programming, Linkitz believes in giving kids age-appropriate programming tools and a great reason to use them!

We are creating an ecosystem of versatile, adaptive devices. We can't wait to get them to you and hear what you want next!
